1. Yes, by the Pope's own account. Sanders pulls a Kim Davis and didn't even get a photo.

 

That is so sad on so many levels.

Please provide a link to a statement from the Pope saying Bernie ambushed him. If you can not provide a link I think we will know who the real Pinocchio is.

This poster has made many untrue accusations that she can in no way back up. How do I know? I've challenged her multiple times; she cannot answer. She cannot iterate the lies she keeps accusing Sanders of telling. Do you respect people who lie to you repeatedly? For my part, I do not.

That said, given your username and time joined, you probably have the inside scoop from the Hillary campaign. Is that the case? Just asking.

"he won't meet with the Pope.""he won't meet with the Pope.""he won't meet with the Pope."

Maybe tap your heels together 3 times too!

9. politifact scores your op "partially correct"

 


The op states "I'm confused" and we find the op entirely correct on that point. However the op goes on to imply that Sanders 'ambushed' the pope, and we find that a ridiculous pile of horseshit.

All in all, given that the op has admitted that the op is generally confused about things, we score this "partially correct".

14. No. There are true, easily verifiable accounts. And there are liars. They're easily distinguished.

 

We pummeled the hell out of the liars, and we'll do it again and again. You're a propagandist and a very dishonest person. One has only to look at any 3 of your posts--ALL of them show you to be a smear merchant.

17. Yes. See the quotes from this article.

 

http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2016/04/16/pope-francis-calls-sanders-greeting-only-common-courtesy/

“This morning as I was leaving, Senator Sanders was there,” Francis said. “He knew I was coming out at that time, and he had the kindness to greet me.”

“When I came down, he introduced himself, I greeted him with a handshake, and nothing more,” the pope added. “It’s common courtesy, this is called common courtesy.

“If someone thinks that greeting someone is getting involved in politics,” he said, “I recommend that they find a psychiatrist.”

26. The Pope greeted Sanders, because Sanders ambushed the Pope. As Francis says, "common courtesy."

 

Just because Sanders has no manners doesn't mean the Pope doesn't.

27. So when the Pope says "he had the kindness to greet me" you interpret that as a lack of manners?

The Pope specifically said Bernie greeted him out of kindness, for you to interpret that as the Pope saying he was ambushed shows you have zero credibility.

18. I think he was waiting for him. I think the Pontiff knew he was in the foyer.

... and as a brief and passing courtesy, he shook his hand, exchanged pleasantries (Hello. Nice to meet you. Hello, nice to meet you too) and the Pontiff with his Papal Entourage headed out the door.

Any other description you hear, or any other words that cleverly imply or suggest that Bernie had a "private audience" with the Pope are questionable.

As more information begins to trickle out, it seems to me that Bernie's summit with the Pope is not as significant has his campaign is making it out to be. (What is significant, however is that the initial reports and descriptions were lacking in the details and accuracy and context that we're not beginning to see. Why is that?)

Go, Hillary! We love you!

30. may be less than that - Bernie says he greeted the Pope, however, when

being asked about the Pope's reply, he said "You'll have to ask the Pope."

Because that is what the Pope said, the Pope never claimed he was ambushed. Good to know that you agree with the Pope that Bernie acted in kindness.

but in general, I have no doubt Bernie would be "kind" toward the Pope.

“This morning as I was leaving, Senator Sanders was there,” Francis said. “He knew I was coming out at that time, and he had the kindness to greet me.”


The Pope specifically said that Bernie greeted him with kindness, there are some liars on this site however that are trying to claim that the Pope said Bernie ambushed him when he said no such thing.

35. I had not seen that particular quote - I remember "courtesy"

and as I said, I am sure Bernie's greeting was courteous/kind.

I am not sure how they happened to run into each other - not sure any facts have come out about the specifics there.

36. Who cares what the specifics are? It was clearly not an ambush.

The Pope has very high security around him, his security was clearly OK with Bernie being there to greet him because if they were not they would have never allowed him to be there.
